The coolest image ever........
« on: 16 October, 2001, 04:41:36 am »
Okay, I'm just wondering, what do you think is the coolest looking picture there has ever been in the hallowed pages of 2000ad? My own vote goes for the prog where Nikolai Dante is bonded with the weapons crest. Particularly that pic of him screaming in pain, and the lines in the background are formed into an image of Dimitri (who I doubt is really dead after the end of the Romanov Empire.anyone else notice how his weapons crest seemed to disappear?and that look in Arkady's eyes.....but I digress) I think that pic summed up very cooly who Dimitri is; The guy in the background, who is always in control. And in case you were wondering, this message was prompted by a few hours recently spent sitting up in my attic reading some of my old collection.And THAT pic just caught my eye again.

Tough choice but I cant narrow it down from two images that are very predictable Dredd ones.

Block Mania - "I'm with Rowdy Yates Block who you fighting with"

Judge Death Lives where Dredd put his fist straight through Fears face.

Has to be that image in the Dredd story Fetish where the voodoo chap sees Dredds spirit, that of a blardy huge flamin eagle behind the Improbably Chinned One himself. Well thats the onyl one that springs to mind. I'm sure there are trillions more, far better than that, but i like Sikus art anyway so i'm biased.

Several spring to mind for this...

Judgement on Gotham - The two 'fear' panels: Batman with a hazy view of all his previous bad-guy foes and Death surrounded by fluffy bunny rabbits and cute bears.

Song Of The Surfer - The end obviously, and the scene where Mr. Shakespere gets shot to buggery coming out of a tunnel. Oh, and the cover for Prog 665, his expression says it all. OK, the whole series is one big cool image!

The cover (dont ask me the prog no.) with Slaine and the Nun - Classic!

More recently... Our fave gun-sharks standing over the body of Demi. S.B. Davis should return to the pages of 2000ad and stop working for the Yanks.

The award for ultimate cool image goes to the private commission of Nemesis (cant for the life of me remember who did it) shown at the V&A exhibition recently - Dark as hell itself.

How about Slaines first warp spasm in The Horned God. The final fullpage panel of The Deadman holding up Dredds badge. The final page in Song of the Surfer (Chopper really should have died there instead of coming back to that awful Earth, Wind & Fire series), Bollands Judge Fish & Russian "I am the Law" covers for the Eagle Dredd reprints. The iconic Dredd Badge with bleeding bullet hole cover from  The Apocalypse War. McMahons Cursed Earth Cover. And the ultimate Gaze into the Fist of Dredd.

The artwork at the V&A is on loan from the private collection of Rufus Dayglo, if its his Nemesis pic thats there then its probably by:
JOHN HICKLETON

I had a good think about your coolest image ever enquiry and came up with this. The double spread scene in Die Laughing where the 'five' dark judges are tearing everybody apart is a definate candidate for this honour. It;s not often that such a disturbing picture is drawn in that much detail. Keep asking ridiculously impossible questions and we'll all try to answer them. Before you ask though, the best story ever is Lucy, it's amazingly disturbing. Cheerio.
